20 The Electricity Reform (Administration) Regulations provide an exemption from the requirement to be licensed for some activities. Licences are not currently required for: small scale renewable and own-use generation and low volume sales of electricity; and on-supply of electricity, as long as the on-supplier complies with certain conditions. The Commission may, with the approval of the Minister, grant an exemption from the requirement to be licensed. As at 30 June 2015, Power and Water held four licences: system control; electricity retail; generation; and network. As at 30 June 2015, retail electricity licences were also held by: Jacana Energy; QEnergy; ERM; and Rimfire. As at 30 June 2015, a standard electricity generation licence was also held by Territory Generation. Special Generation licence IPP licences were held by the following producers who do not participate fully in the electricity supply industry and instead generate electricity under contract for another generator: EDL (McArthur River power station, McArthur River, and Pine Creek A power station, Pine Creek); Cosmo Power Pty Ltd (Pine Creek B power station, Pine Creek); Central Energy Power Pty Ltd (Brewer Estate power station, Alice Springs); Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (Ranger power station, Jabiru); LMS Energy Pty Ltd (Shoal Bay power station, Darwin); Uterne Power Plant Pty Ltd (photovoltaic system at Alice Springs); and TKLN Solar Pty Ltd (photovoltaic systems at Ti Tree, Kalkarindji and Lake Nash Alpurrurulam). An isolated system licence was held by Groote Eylandt Mining Company Pty Ltd (GEMCO). The Commission renewed the licence issued to GEMCO on 19 June 2014.
